Panic need help.Can i replace the rear shock on the 05 NRS with an off the shelf Fox Float or does the shock need some trick valving to match the suspension set up.This is urgent im without a ride and going into withdrawl.Help.
Some people say you can run a standard shock off the self. However, the NRS really requires a shock with an adjustable negative chamber. Most shocks now-a-days come with auto adjusting negative chambers (depending on the psi in the positive chamber). As well as this a lot of shocks come with some form of pro-pedal, the NRS requires a set amount PSI in the negative chamber so there auto adjust shocks r no good in reality.
If you are going for an off the shelf shock go for a standard shock with the lowest pro-pedal settings you can find. Recommended shocks are the cane creek cloud 9 shock, fox float AVA and the 5th Element Air as well as the GIANT OEM NRS shock. (I'm sure there are more).
